Yes, we DO Passport / Immigration Photos
Once in a while, we are asked if we do take PASSPORT / IMMIGRATION photos.
Answer has been always, "YES, we do!". Not because there's big money to make by taking passport photos, but because it is a service by which our clients could easily learn of our other services by looking around our studio.
Actually, some people decided to have their family portraits done at YouShine after seeing some of our samples displayed at our studio.
By the way, we guarantee our passport photos to meet every government's requirements. We take a few pictures so that our clients can choose the right expression. And we do make sure lighting etc. are exactly as specified by the governments. In order insure exact size and format, we also place the template issued by passport authority over the image we take before cropping it to insure that the size we crop is exactly as the size the requirements that are specified as shown below.
Unlike those folks who take passport photos with Polaroid cameras and thus could not produce exact centimeter sizes, we can produce any government's requirement such as Canada, Iranian, Japanese, etc., whose requirements are different than USA's using Centimeters for size. And the photos we provide right after the sitting is real color photos, and not Polaroid shots.
For this service, however, we require appointment for we do all our sessions by appointment basis, and we hate to turn away any who come without any appointment. For this elaborate service for two 2"x2" photos, we charge simply $15.63 plus tax.
